Thank you to The Teaguy for sending me generous free samples. I look forward to trying them all. :)

Coldbrew, 2 tsp leaf in 500 mL water for 2 hours
The vanilla really comes through well. It tastes how good vanilla extract smells in the container. There’s that distinctive vanilla scent and also the smell of the alcohol it is infused into. This rooibos blend perfectly captures the alcohol aspect of vanilla which I LOVE. So often vanilla smells really good, but if you taste vanilla extract it isn’t nearly as good as you hoped. This is the perfect vanilla blend. I’m not sure there is a ton of bourbon, but it’s there enough to live up to its name. I think this could be made as a latte if steeped strong enough. It does well as a cold brew, but I can imagine it would be equally enjoyable hot.

I’m actually extremely impressed with this rooibos. I was expressing generic vanilla + rooibos and got something that stands out as being well crafted and accurate to its name.

Flavors: Alcohol, Rooibos, Sweet, Vanilla

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

Did I miss something? Seem to be seeing a lot more reviews from this company suddenly?

Not sure about everyone else, but I got a PM sample offer about a month ago- which I missed because I wasn’t on here at the time.

Arby

Same here. I got a message about free samples and I gave them my mailing address. They sent me 6 or 7 large samples (25g each I think) for free.

Sil

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
